offensive and who shot the secret video that changed the course of history? good to have you with us tonight. thanks for watching. the 47% video changed the course of the 2012 presidential election. the romney campaign scamabled to address the candid comments, but the proof was on the video. governor romney was not concerned with the middle class in this country or the poor in america. for months, the identity of the person who shot the video remained a mystery. over the next hour, you will hear his story. right now, you will find out just who he is. what is your name and what are you all about? >> my name is scott prowdy. i'm a regular guy, middle class, hard working guy. you know, i think i would like to think i have a good moral compass and a core and i have a little empathy, a little more than mitt romney had. i don't know how i would describe myself, but i was behind this whole thing. i was bar tending that night for the romney fund-raiser. >> let's talk about may 17th. what happened that day? >> we got there, you know, it was a, you know, a political fund-raiser. we did our usual thing
's life. and that is wrong. that's what we need to change. we need to change the conversation entirely and focus on the choices and the actions of the person who committed the crime. because the only reason rain happens is rapists choose to commit rain. that is what we need to be talking about. and instead we always about what the victims could have and should have done to avoid rain, and that's completely wrong. >> erin, how do we push past this identification with the two young men, the boys in this case and focus squarely again on this female victim, because it seems some people are blaming the victim because it seems they either knew details of the case or didn't care or didn't know, like the damning messages sent. >> i'm inspired by the bravery of this young woman who testified in front of her accusers and went against the tide in a town that wore chipped football and football players. in terms of the town now it looks like there's going to be a grand jury convened. i think there are a lot of unanswered questions when it comes to the actions of the coach and his failure to report

that changed the course of history? good to have you with us tonight or the poor in america. for months t identity of the person who shot this video has remained a mystery. over the next hour you will hear the story and find out who he is. what is your name and what are you about. i would like to think i have a good moral compass. than mitt romney had. i don't know how i would describe myself, but i was behind this whole thing. i was bar tending that night for the romney fund-raiser. >> let's talk about may 17th. what happened that day? >> we got there, you know, it was a, you know, a political fund-raiser. we did our usual thing. we set up. you know, it went off without a hitch. i work high end parties from all over for extra money. you know, it was really just another typical party that i have done plenty of them just like it. >> did you know you were going to record him? >> you know, i did -- i brought the camera. a lot of other people brought cameras, like i said thinking he would come back and take pictures. clinton came back with the staff and took pictures. that was really my thoug
that department of homeland security has not changed since i left. despite this huge spike in the number of anti-government groups, they still only have one analyst looking at domestic non-islamic extremism. i find that quite startling and unsettling to me. >> what should be done about it? >> i think the slc is taking an important step in recommending an interagency task force. but there are other things that can be done. we have a whole generation of analysts and law enforcement officers who have been coming up through the ranks who had no idea what they're dealing with because they weren't on the job back in the 1990s. i would encourage training. we need to have commitment on the federal, state and local law enforcement to long-term undercover investigations looking into these groups. >> well, mr. johnson, how do you know what to take serious and what is a joke? i mean, where do you draw the line? and can analysts actually get to a point where they say we really need to watch this group. they are going to be trouble. >> yeah, that's one of the difficult aspects of the job. i think one of the t
senators over there who were pushing harry reid to change the rules and lo and behold here comes rand paul doing the talking filibusters, what they were talking about all along. >> i'm not a parliamentary expert. but i think this filibuster when you stand up and you've got to dot jimmy stewart thing and stand up and talk forever, that that can last only so long, but now i think the rule is they just don't get 60 votes and threaten to filibuster, the bill goes down. i think there's going to be some sort of tweaking. and they're holding up all kinds of judicial appointments and appointments to the government. the record, it's horrendous. it's much more than anything we've ever experienced in the past. and it has a great deal of frustration. i think rand paul's thing was kind of a comic show to a lot of people. but it was a 12 or 13-hour thing. >> about the drone program, where are the democrats on this debate? there's been very few democrats who are willing to call the president out on this. is it because he's just so popular, they're protect the president, they think he's got enough on his
't this -- we're at a point of trying to make change. you were just trying to change the conversation. >> right. >> that it's about behavior and it's not about firearms. >> yes. >> they're trying to make the case and the people who were attacking you is that you're trying to suppress some kind of gun ownership out there. >> right. and that's not really the issue. i was trying to move away from that conversation. i think that we get stuck too often in asking what women should or could have done to prevent rape, and instead we need to educate and train men to not rape in the first place. >> katrina, this overreaction to what a woman says about gun violence in america and protection after speaking her mind i mean is just amazing. i want to play a comment from republican strategist steve schmitt and get your response to this. >> i think in any organization where women are not at the table, where a skewed male in today's day and age, that's an organization that's deficient. that's an organization that's going to have problems. it's one of the problems that we have structurally in the republican part

base didn't come out. they lost because the country's changing. until they figure out that, they're going to keep opposing this and serving it up on a platter for democrats. >> given the fact that the fighting wing and other wing, maybe the chicken wing as well, the inability to step up to the plate here, the rnc report, rush limbaugh's not happy with it. what do republicans do? how do they figure their way out of this corner? >> it's time for them to go in the church we say to the alter. they need a wake up all call. it's really time to have a come to jesus moment with not only the policies, but who the messengers are. speaking of the ryan budget, you have a document that essentially says these are the things that our priorities and we've attached numbers to them. that's how much this matters. this is why the american public should pay attention to this. no, it's not going to pass. it's going to go to the house floor with other budgets and die right there because the upper chamber has no interest in ryan's priorities. when you look at the gop great opportunity plan or whatever i

. smugglers know the agency's weakness and exploit changes in manpower. of course, arizona governor jan brewer is a longtime advocate of the corporate tax cuts and shrinking government programs. always has been. but all of a sudden, she's kind of changing her tune. brewer lashed out this week when federal spending cuts forced homeland security to release 300 low risk detainees. >> they are releasing what we believe to be criminal illegal alien. >> brewer's spokesman calls the news about the furloughs outrageous and, quote, any cut that impacts public safety should be a last resort. then there's maricopa county sheriff joe arpaio who is also questioning this party's spending cuts. he told a reporter, you shouldn't take away resources when you still have a problem. it doesn't make sense. where were all these folks before? it's hard to feel sorry for the radical anti-immigration crack pots whining about federal spending cuts if the republicans had their way, they would drown government in a bathtub, right? maybe this will wake them up to just how dangerous their radical ideas really are. border s
